Reporting inappropriate content

Making Quizlet a safe, clean learning environment for everyone is extremely important to us. If you see something inappropriate on Quizlet, please let us know about it right away.

Some examples of inappropriate content and behaviors include:

  • Cyberbullying — Content or accounts created to threaten or harass another person are unacceptable on Quizlet. We filter and remove this type of content, but those filters can't catch everything. Thus, we also depend on users to let us know directly if bullying is occurring on Quizlet.
  • Violence or self-harm — Quizlet is not a venue for threatening, discussing, or glorifying violence, harm to others, or harm to yourself. Studying disorders or unsafe behaviors for educational purposes is valid, but we will remove content that actively promotes or glorifies self-harm or suicide.
    • If you are considering self-injury or suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. The call is free and confidential, and trained counselors are available 24/7. View more resources here.
  • Graphic images — Students on Quizlet study all kind of content, including subjects like nursing and medicine. Occasionally, images in these educational sets are graphic. If you see an image that isn't appropriate for all audiences, or one that is overtly offensive, please let us know about it.
  • Bad ads — We work with Google to make sure our advertisements are suitable for all ages and not spammy or distracting. If you see an ad that shouldn't be shown on Quizlet, please take a screenshot of your browser window and right-click the ad to copy the link address — then send that information to us. We'll act as soon as possible to prevent the bad ad or others like it from showing up on Quizlet again.
  • Personal information — User privacy is critically important to us. You can read our full Privacy Policyhere. If you see your or someone else's personally identifiable information that shouldn't be public, let us know.
  • Anything else that goes against our Community Guidelines
